"The Peo! 

In order to cover the activities throughout thtej 
school year, I found it necessary to contract 
with the second one arriving in August. I hope 
you feel that this part is an adequate represent 
of the first semester of the '73- '74 school yea 

















The annual staff, on be- 
half of the students and 
faculty, dedicates the 
1973-74 CAROLANA to 
our director, Dr, Olin 
Sansbury, Jr. The an- 
nouncement of Dr. Sans- 
bury as permanent di- 
rector of the Spartanburg 
Regional Campus was 
made on February 27, 
His work with and for 
USC-S this year has 
greatly benefited both 
students and faculty. We 
feel that his influence 
will continue to benefit 
our school and the com- 
munity as we continue 
to grow. 


Dear USC-S students: 
The University of South Carolina-Spar 
tanburg reached an important 
milestone in 1973-74, ful- 
filling the enrollment 
requirements for ad- 
ding junior level 
coursework. All 
signs indicate 
that next fall, 
USC-S wai 
achieve the 
necessary en- 
rollment for 
adding sen- 
ior level 
meaning that 
many of you 
now enrolled 
will be able 
to earn a bac - 
cal aureate de- 
gree on this 

In addition to an 
expanding academ- 
ic program, USC-3 
is also developing a 
stronger and more 
varied array of extra- 
curricular activities, 
seeking to create a rn^ 
complete coUe 

community. Although this is sometimes 
difficult on a commuter campus, 
thanks to your efforts, and 
the efforts of a talented 
faculty -staff, our goal 
is becoming a real- 

is an excitin 

time to be a' 
part of thei 
USC-S comr 
munity anc 
we hope thai 
you will al- 
ways feel a 
sense of 
pride at 
being dt. 
member oP 
this com- 
munity, now 
and in the

The university administra- 
tion keeps close contact 
with the regional campus- 
es. These officials ad- 
minister to USC-S and co- 
ordinate our activities with 
the university in Columbia. 
USC-S appreciates their 
presence and involvement 
in such activities as the 
Palmetto Athletic Confer- 
ence Tournament, Dr. 
Sansbury's permanent ap- 
pointment as director of 
the Spartanburg Regional 
Campus, and graduation.

Spring '74 registration brought 
an enrollment of 915 under- 
graduate students and 530 
graduate students. Plans to in- 
troduce junior level courses in 
the fall continued as a result 
of acquiring over 700 full -time - 
equivalent students in the fall. 
This plan operates under the 
1972 legislation which states 
that when a post secondary ed- 
ucation school reaches an en- 
rollment of 700 students, jun- 
ior level courses may be add- 
ed, and that when the school 
reaches an enrollment of 1,000 
students, senior level courses 
may be added.

The problems of a com- 
muter school are many, 
and the Spartanburg 
Regional Campus has its 
share. But the adminis- 
tration, faculty, and stu- 
dents worked hard this 
year in solving some of 
them. Car pool lists and 
recruitment activities 
are two good examples of 
this kind of effective 
cooperation. At the end of 
first semester, car pool 
lists were made available 
in the Hodge Center Lobby. 
Covering a ten-region 
breakdown of Spartanburg 
and surrounding areas, 
these lists of names helped 

students know and contact 
other students as possi- 
bilities for forming car 

Recruitment activities in- 
cluded committee meet- 
ings, visits to high 
schools, a "Send a Friend 
to College" ad, a recruit- 
ment rally, letters to 
high school seniors, and 
television and radio pro- 
grams. We thank the com- 
mittee for its service to 
USC-S, and the results of 
its work will be seen not 
only in 1974-75, but also 
in the many years ahead 
as we continue to grow. 



econd semester brought many new activities and 
deas at USC-S. One of these was the creation of 
"he Purple Keg and the appearance of alcoholic 
leverages on our campus. On Friday, January 25, 
he Hodge Center lobby was turned into the set- 
ing for an informal party complete with free beer, 
ancing, guitar -strumming, banjo -picking, and 
iano-playing. With entertainment by Tommy Sar- 
att, Danny Wilson, Bruce Cash, Walker Copley, 
eau Long, Barney Barnwell, Steve Kellett, and 
arry Smith, the crowd enjoyed themselves by 
iinging and dancing. It wasn't long before they 
3und themselves square-dancing, complete with 
winging their partner, 3 different circles, and 
lenty of mix-ups. The creation of The Purple Keg 
ras a success in the students' and the administra-

The 1974 Palmetto Ath- 
letic Conference Tour- 
nament was an important 
turning point in the con- 
ference and for the Spar- 
tanburg Regional Cam- 
pus, The tournament was 
hosted in Spartanburg for 
the first time ever and 
was won by USC-Spar- 
tanburg for the first time 
ever also. Through the 
many valuable efforts of 
faculty, staff and students, 
a smooth efficient tour- 
nament was carried off 
with few distractions 
from a group of fine bas- 
ketball games. The team 
provided the spark of life 
that hopefully will grow 
and help to develop the 
pride and spirit that are 
so essential to the build- 
ing of a great school. 

Coach Joe Bowman 

use -Spartanburg experi- 
enced two firsts as the host 
of and the champions of 
the Palmetto Athletic Con- 
ference Tournament held 
on February 21-23. After 
victories over USC-Sal- 
kehatchie and USC- Lan- 
caster on Thursday and 
Friday nights, the Rifles 
fought a neck-to-neck bat- 
tle with the Aiken team. 
The victory was uncertain 
until J. C. Humphries, 
the Rifles' star forward, 
was thrown out on a fla- 
grant foul. This seemed 
to fire up the Rifles and 
lead them to the unex- 
pected win of 68-63. We 
upset the Pacers and be- 

The Miss PAC crowning 
was held during half time 
of the championship game 
with Margaret McNeil from 
USC -Union capturing the 
honor. Runnerups were 
Miss Salkehatchie and Miss 
Sumter. Judy Odom, es- 
corted by Tim Corbin, 
represented USC -Spar- 
tanburg in the contest. 
After the game, various 
awards were given to the 
teams and individual play- 
ers. Robert "Chief" Smith, 
the Rifles' high scorer of 
the game, was voted the 
tournament's "Most Val- 
uable Player. " The tour- 
nament was also high- 
lighted by a coaches' 
breakfast, a press lunch- 
eon and a directors' and 
coaches' golf match at 
Lan-Yair Country Club. 
A dance was held for USC 
students with "Horseheads" 
from Aiken performing. 






use -Spartanburg also 
hosted the National Lit- 
tle College Athletic 
Association South Atlantic 
Regional Basketball 
Tournament on February 
29-30. The NLCAA is a 
55 member organization 
aimed at providing inter- 
collegiate competition at 
a national level for small 
schools. Six teams played 
in the conference and in- 
dependent divisions. The 
Spartan Rifles blasted the 

use -Lancaster Lancers 
85-70 on Friday with 
Chuck Evans totaling 28 
points. But Saturday night 
witnessed another story 
for the Rifles as they met 
the Aiken Pacers for the 
national conference berth. 

The lead changed hands 
21 times, with the score 
tied up seven times before 
the Pacers finally broke 
loose in the last six and 
one -half minutes. With 

foul trouble for the Ri- 
fles and good free 
throws for the Aiken 
team, they won the game, 
74-70. Although Coach 
Bowman questioned the 
officiating, the referees 
prevailed. The game 
left the Rifles with an 
19-7 overall record this 
year, the school's 
best ever. CONGRAT- 
for a great season.

For the wing's frame, Barnes 
used sturdy pieces of bamboo, 
cut by his students in a ttucket 
near Woodruff. The bamboo 
was covered with tightly 
wrapped sheets of thick plastic 
and bound with heavy tape. 

The pilot supports himself by 
draping his arms over two poles 
which run parallel to the keel. 
The dimensions are about 20 x 
23 feet, and the craft weighs 
nearly 80 pounds. 

Barnes and seven uf his 
students built the glider last 
week in the lobby of the Hodge 
Center in about eight hours for

Testing began last Monday 
afternoon on the USC-S campus 
when Barnes judged the winds 
to be right. He says a 20 mph 
wind IS ideal, pernutting the 
wing to glide between five and 
10 feet off the ground. 

Two students help to guide tlie 
glinder during takeoff, and then 
It's up to the pilot to control the

THE MIKADO, a Gilbert 
and Sullivan comic opera, 
was presented April 26 by 
thirty -five USC-S students. 
With weeks of preparation, 
the play involved students 
of the Course 454 Music 
for the Young Child and 

the University Choraleers. 
The 30-minute performance 
attracted many area chil- 
dren as a result of pro- 
motion by people involved 
in Early Childhood Educa- 
tion and Elementary Edu- 
cation. The abbreviated 

form, arranged to appeal 
to young children, was 
set in Japan and concerned 
the plight of four lovers. 
The play was directed by 
Mrs. Lester H. Colloms 
and narrated by Dr. 
Jessie Wall. 


The annual Spring Festival

There was also a teacher 
auction in which the high- 
est bidder received ser - 
vices or items from 
our instructors. 

Friday's activities were 
concluded with our last

Armory. With "Justice" 
from Columbia performing, 
the dance proved to be one 
of the best of the year. 
Miss USC-S and her court

faculty committee on the 
basis of participation in 

school activities, beauty, 
poise, and personality.

Now that the end has come, my hope is that you feel this yearbook has reflected you and 
your school during 1973-74. Without the help of a few dedicated people, these reflections 
would not have been possible. A special thanks goes to Miss Judy Sessions, advisor of 
the CAROLANA, and to Mr. Tom Davis, Director of Student Affairs. Thank you, news- 
paper staff, for bearing with me and sharing the publications room. My thanks also goes 
to Mr. Fred Bostrom and Jostens American Yearbook Company for putting up with such 
a weird editor. And to the faithful few photographers who stuck it out to the very end, 1 
am forever grateful. We have our own reflections - 4:00 a.m. , impossible deadlines, 
curly pictures, pizzas, rolling chairs, keys, and spades over the trash can. It was all
